This was the fearless reply of a teenager on being produced in the court after arrest For violating loss for the sake of his motherland. The brave son of Indian soil, chandra Shekhar Azad was basically a revolutionary and always believed in the ‘philosophy of bomb’.He believed that he would be able to demoralize the british government by causing the big losses to imperial bureaucracy and thus win freedom for the country through coercion.He believed that freedom could be grabbed only when rifles, and blood take the place of ink and pen.

He was born in Bhaora village of Jhabua district of Madhya Pradesh, Chandra Shekhar Azad a national revolutionary, was the main inspiration of the revolutionary group which played an important role in the freedom movement. After finishing study at Banaras Sanskrit college and Keshari Vidyapeeth, he joined the national freedom movement in 1922. Azad devoted himself completely to propagate violent revolutionary ideas. He had full faith in his capacity to convert the British people to his ways and make them see the wrong they had done to Hindustan.

When Lala Lajpat Rai a succumbed to the injuries sustained in the lathi charge by police while protecting against the Simon Commission in Lahore, Chandrashekhar azad along with Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev decided to take revenge. They planned to suit British police Superintendent J.A Scott at Lahore. They did it according to their plan, but Scott escaped and the assistant Superintendent of British police J.P. sander was killed.

The revolutionaries become very active after the suspension of the non cooperation movement by Gandhiji then, chandrashekhar azad organized the revolutionaries and formed the Hindustani socialist republican association(HSRA) in 1928.Under his leadership Bhagat Singh and Batukeshwar Dutt threw a bomb in the central legislative assembly on April 9 1929 to register their protests against the public safety bill.
Chandrashekhar was a true patriot with a difference his dynamic outlook in freedom movement raised the eyebrows of many leaders. Azad believed that hands that help the nation are holier than lips that pray and induced the people to think. Today, the word ‘patriotism’ has been reduced to just a mere word; nice to preach but never to practice. Crime, corruption and lust for wealth have degraded the common man into a self serving hypocrite, completely bereft of any sense of moral values. Sadly the present state of affairs has become so disgusting that any person who still has in him any semblance of virtue, finds himself out in the cold and is of all probability accused by Society of not being a realistic or not moving with time.
It is said that any nation is as good as its people. Is this the India of our dreams? India has been a land of great leaders like Mahatma Gandhi, Subhash Chandra Bose Azad Bhagat Singh Jawahar Lal Nehru etc. The list is endless there was a time in the not too distant past. When leaders inspired people, they were the paragons of good virtues morality guidelines for others to emulate sadly the politicians of today come nowwhere close to them most of the our peers in society drive around in luxurious I stay in palitial houses and enjoy majestic lifestyle, amass assets disab proportionate to their known sources of income believes in perpetuating their rule through sons daughters and wives.

Despite 53 years of Independence where is true freedom from shackles, open bribery in municipal and public dealing offices, laws, more breached than respected. And where is the Rule of law, it is otherwise lawlessness that rules roost despite wireless fitted maruti Gypsis and other aids provided to police The mafia is ruling and not the law- enforcing agencies.
